Account -> "Absurdum"?


It acknowledges that a line in the sand must be drawn on what would occupy any organism capable of sufficiently complex thought. It's also an implementation convenience in that a new letter doesn't have to be substituted where generic parameterisation is called for.

Both cute and realistic.

Being derived from the Latin "reductio ad absurdum", the term carries connotations of formality, and also perhaps underscores the utter silliness of the concept's philosophical direction: a contemplative singularity. Its plural would be "Absurda" and the collective noun might be a "Silliness" of Absurda.

This term also acknowledges the humorous event horizon encircling the purpose of the Account too. Great!

  1. Rather curious page view activity. I witness no less than 14 hits from the US, and observe a pattern about the subject matter of other page views: someone's looking for more information on the state of implementation's progress.
